LMForums and The London Market raises £10,000 in 2017 for Haven House Children's Hospice

LMForums and The London Market raises £10,000 in 2017 for Haven House Children's Hospice

2017 was a year of growth and evolution for LMForums, with a number of new styled events, including a mid year Charity Fashion Gala, which was not only a lot of fun but raised over £8,000 for our charity of the year, Haven House Children’s Hospice. This was thanks to the amazing generosity of the London Market professionals who attended this spectacular event at the incredible Banking Hall opposite the Bank of England. Through a mixture of a Grand Prize Draw and a Charity Auction the funds came flooding in that night and all monies went straight to this truly remarkable charity. During the evening one of the parents who’d benefited from the support from the hospice when their child had passed away, gave an emotional speech, recounting his experience of the support he and his wife had received.

A few weeks later, we went to visit the charity at the hospice, on the borders of London and Essex, in its amazing woodland setting. It was a visit that none of us will forget. The work undertaken at the hospice and the care given is beyond words and we were both moved moved and filled with admiration at the same time. In December 2017 at the 2nd Market People Awards our friends from Haven House returned and through another prize packed Draw, we raised almost £2,000. LMForums would like to thank all of our members, friends and business associates for their kind generosity during 2017 which helped in raising £10,000 for an incredible charity. Thank you to all the staff from Haven House who came to our events to promote their charity and assist in the running of our two big social gatherings.

We would encourage any London Market firms looking to support a charity as part of the CSR activities to reach out to Haven House - their work and dedication to the cause is remarkable. It’s their 15th Birthday this year and they are going through a big modernisation programme.

LMForums charity for 2018 is Kids Inspire - an Essex based children’s charity assisting vunerable young people and their families.
